A Refugee Loss Simulation
At the 2017 Women’s Leadership Forum, we interviewed three missional leaders on the topic of refugees. We discussed the biblical mandate for caring for refugees and how women can get involved both domestically and internationally. We followed the panel discussion with a refugee loss simulation that took the subject to another level. For many women, the simulation both stirred their hearts and brought the subject to a very personal level. It was not meant to traumatize anyone in the audience but to bring awareness and empathy to some of the world’s most marginalized people. With permission, Trent DeLoach, who created the simulation, has provided a basic outline of what was experienced that night. Click here to read the Refugee Loss Simulation outline.
